How much am I going to be charged for checking a second bag in Economy class?

I'm flying back to the US from Germany this week and I am bringing a second checked bag with me that is full of souvenirs and such. I bought the extra bag assuming that it would be cheaper/easier to check a second bag on the flight back rather than ship it....Now that I'm looking at it, not so much... I am flying with SAS, whose weight limits are 50 lbs/1 bag are free for economy, and the second checked bag can be up to 50 pounds and costs 50 dollars. However! The first leg of my flight is from Germany to Sweden, and according to my ticket, it is chartered by Lufthansa, whose luggage allowance I cannot make heads or tails of (weight limit vs. piece limit?!) Who is going to charge me for my second bag and how bad is the damage going to be? It is horrendously unfair that simply because I couldn't get a direct flight, I might be completely gouged by Lufthansa...
